Power Rankings Week 11

The SEC East race is coming right down to the wire and the Kentucky Wildcats could play spoiler for two teams. The Wildcats desperately want to get a win over Tennessee who has beaten them 22 straight times, the longest current streak in FBS (formerly Div I-A). The ACC will have two showdowns to determine the teams meeting in Jacksonville and you know the ACC offices are hoping for Virginia Tech – Clemson and not Virginia – Boston College.

SEC
1. LSU
2. Georgia
3. Florida
4. Tennessee
5. Auburn
6. Kentucky
7. Miss State
8. Alabama
9. Arkansas
10. South Carolina

11. Vanderbilt
12. Ole Miss
LSU got off to a slow start but poured it on against La Tech. Georgia was very impressive on offense against Auburn. Same for Florida against South Carolina who gave a Spurrier a dose of his own medicine throwing a TD up by 13 with less than 2 minutes to go. Tennessee looked good, especially defensively against Arkansas and just need to win out to go to Atlanta. Auburn needs to go back to the drawing board on defense after last Saturday. They will try to go for 6 in a row against Alabama next. How about Mississippi State? Bowl eligible and have beaten Alabama two years in a row – could it be the curse of Sly Croom on Alabama? South Carolina’s season is slowly spinning out of control. A month ago, they would have been favorites against rival Clemson, but the momentum has switched to the Upstate school.

ACC

1. Virginia Tech
2. Clemson
3. Virginia
4. Boston College
5. Wake Forest
6. Maryland
7. Georgia Tech
8. Florida State
9. NC State
10. North Carolina
11. Miami
12. Duke
The Hokies have found an offense and didn’t miss a beat under Tyrod Taylor returning from injury. Clemson is rolling
right now and will have its biggest home ACC game since FSU joined the league this Saturday against Boston College. How about Virginia laying 48 on Miami in the final game at the Orange Bowl? I think they removed some doubt about all those close victories. I was disappointed in Wake’s execution vs Clemson. Maryland, with 2nd string O-line and all, helped BC continue their annual late season swoon. NC State is making a late run now having won 4 in a row, including a win over rival North Carolina who has owned the Pack as of late.

Top 10
1. LSU
2. Oregon
3. Oklahoma
4. Ohio State
5. Kansas
6. Missouri
7. West Virginia
8. USC
9. Georgia
10. Virginia Tech
Next 3: Arizona State, Texas, Florida
